Wild Leaves - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Wild Leaves
Wild Leaves are five friends who moved from the midwest to Brooklyn together. That distance is reflected in their songs. Their sound is something nostalgic, something with history–like a record rediscovered in your attic. The soaring harmonies, assertive rhythm section, and shimmering electric guitars have drawn comparisons to the west coast sounds of The Byrds, CSNY, & Jefferson Airplane. Yet, there is something still distinctly relevant to today–like the sound of a memory not yet lost.
St. Claire - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
St. Claire
Having come to Brooklyn by way of Europe, California, New England and their native state of Ohio, sister and brother Emily and Glenn Forsythe are the indie folk band St. Claire. Joined by Amelia Emmet (from Thick Wild) and Michael Howard, St. Claire weaves thick, hushed harmonies together with ambient layers of sound made of instruments new and old. Emily's voice reaches over anthem-like rhythms, delivering soulful, somber melodies and lyrics full to the brim with alluring images and stories. St. Claire is currently working on their follow up record to their debut album "Everyone Lives Here."
Nathan Xander - (Set time: 9:00 PM)

"On The Fear, Nathan Xander takes a bold and reaching step to transform himself from a solo folk singer into a main stage commodity. The rich textures of his voice power through the chords, be it acoustic or electric, and conjure memories of smoke and sawdust. At its core, The Fear is roots rock and a big chunk of Americana. This album is honest and filled with heart, fear, and ultimately faith." - Deli Magazine
